ABSTRACT: In a trajectory towards a Circular Economy (CE), this paper develops a onto-epistemological position which is inherently tectonic and ecological advocating the devel-opment and implementation of a Circular Tectonic Ecology (CTE) to follow. While an ac-tualization relatively of a CE and a Circular Tectonic Ecology are problematic due to is-sues linked to global politics and economy (Laumann, Tambo 2018: 1) (Ritzen, Sandström 2017:11), the paper argues for an contemporary emphasis on a development of critical tectonic theory (which is radically self-critical) as transitory stepping stone towards a po-tential future of a CE, and as such opens itself towards collaborations across scales of de-sign and professions, field and sciences. By implementation of critical theory in the form of Dialectical Materialism as developed by Slavoj Žižek, and Speculative Realism as de-veloped by Graham Harman and ecological theory by Timothy Morton, the paper argues, while well aware that a transition into a CE is problematic, contemporary tectonic theory should aim at critically dismantling the multitude of transcendental a prioi and axioms linked with design thinking before a serious attempt at being ecological can happen.The paper finally develops a circular model, acting as shift in perspective, and argues for a transposing of the design process thinking onto a 1:1 scale reality.
